This vacation is too long said no one ever…but mine is approaching that line. I am beyond tired of my clothes and feel like I have mixed and matched these pieces ad nauseam. Part of my problem is I packed very few black items.
Neutrals are critical for a successful travel wardrobe. They allow easy mixing and matching but more importantly, they are often supporting players which make them unmemorable.
My current travel wardrobe is based around white which isn’t as successful as black has been. Black allows you to stretch your wardrobe more successfully.
Yesterday we played tourist in Victoria, BC.
I wore blue jeans, a white tank, a striped linen shirt and a big hat. Don’t get me wrong, I love these clothes, I’m just tired of them. It was too warm for necklaces so I wore a simple blue bracelet and added fun earrings.
The weather was perfect and Victoria was teeming with tourists. We wandered through the Fairmont and was surprised at the changes. The Empress has undergone a massive renovation and I was sad to see all the ivy pulled down. In years past almost the entire front was covered with lush ivy.
The gardens are as lush and gorgeous as ever. We weren’t dressed for afternoon tea in the lobby so may return for it later this week. There is no strict dress code and I saw all manner of fashion statements being made but I prefer to dress the part when enjoying something elegant like high tea at the Empress.
I did do some online shopping at the Nordstrom sale and will try to share with you tomorrow. While hunting for a link for my blue linen shirt, I found it in rose, on sale here and ordered it:)
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
